Still Flyin' - (Set time: 7:30 PM)
Still Flyin'
More of a collective than an actual rock band, Still Flyin' is the brainchild of singer/songwriter Sean Rawls, who formed it in late 2004 in San Francisco after relocating there from Athens, GA, in 2003. Rawls was inspired to put the group together by a song he had written with a member of Je Suis France, "Never Gonna Touch the Ground." To jam on the song, he invited a wide range of friends to rehearse, resulting in an ever-shifting personnel of upwards of 15 musicians and singers at a time, performing locally.
Radical Dads - (Set time: 6:30 PM)
Radical Dads
Radical Dads is a band that sounds like standing next to a body of water and noticing that something is moving just underneath the surface and then realizing that actually nothing is moving, it’s just that your glasses are broken and you have no idea how it happened. Also your elbow is scraped up and you think something just caught on fire in the distance — you can see the glow and smell it a little. There is a junkyard nearby, where something is about to happen, or is already happening.

Radical Dads features Lindsay Baker on guitar #1 and vocals. Chris Diken plays guitar #2. Robbie Guertin plays the drums and also sings. They’ve been friends for 15 years and started Radical Dads in 2008.

The band’s first album, Mega Rama, was released by Uninhabitable Mansions in June of 2011. Some people have said some nice things about Radical Dads’ music, including people who work for The New York Times, SPIN, the Village Voice, the AV Club, and Brooklyn Vegan.

Radical Dads live in Brooklyn, practice in Gowanus, and currently concern themselves with amplification and the anthropomorphism of marine life.
